DIVING IN YAP
"Clear blue water, schooling manta rays, sharks cruising along the top of steep walls- what more could a diver ask of a destination?"
Yap Island has been made famous by its resident schooling Manta Rays. But there is so much more to Yap than these stunning creastures. Yet people come from around the world to dive with Manta rays. Yap now plays host to a large selction of sharks. Grey Reefs, Silver tips, Mako's White tipped reef sharks and black tipped reef sharks. Mandarin fish abound, and small shallow wrecks of Japanese aircraft add to the whole picture.
Finally there are reefs of gorgeous hard coral kilometres long in 50m clear blue water.
